Kylie herself has donated a signed CD of her chart hit ‘All The Lovers’. The item will be auctioned in the Royal Vauxhall Tavern following the day’s sporting events and is accompanied by a letter of authentication from her management team.

Gay Sports Day is an annual event organised by GMFA, the gay men’s health charity, and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, and takes place in Spring Gardens in Vauxhall on Bank Holiday Monday, 30 August.

Founded in 1992, GMFA is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to gay men’s health. Its mission is to improve gay men’s health by increasing the control they have over their own lives.

The organisation is based on the belief that the best health promotion for gay men comes from gay men themselves. For this reason, it uses the knowledge and ideas of its 170 volunteers, most of them gay men, to design and plan its thought-provoking sexual health interventions. These include a range of advertising campaigns, leaflets, postcards and booklets; FS, its health magazine, distributed nationally in gay venues and GU clinics; and national and London-based courses covering sex education, life skills and smoking cessation. In addition, GMFA creates targeted sexual health interventions for black gay men and HIV positive gay men.

Independent surveys have concluded that GMFA’s campaigns reach up to 60% of the London gay population and that the organisation is the most reliable agency at reaching gay men.
